Miracles cluster around Elijah as around Moses and Jesus. Elijah calls Israel to return to the covenant. His message is that of John the Baptist – repent and produce fruit in keeping with repentance! His ministry is a pivotal one too. What struck you as you read this history?
As the captain of the fifty cried to Elijah, “… Let my life be precious in your sight.” – with great exclamation and fear you can assume – So is to be our attitude when we come before the Lord in repentance and belief.
And we can give thanks and praise to God that YES! In Jesus our lives _are_ precious in His sight!
Hallelujah, wonderful Saviour!
